Posey (hip) hasn't discussed transitioning to a new position, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports. Posey underwent season-ending hip surgery in late August, but despite the major injury, he still intends to primarily play catcher in 2019. This season was the first time since 2011 in which Posey didn't appear in at least 140 games, so he's been one of the most durable catchers in the league over that span. Things can change over the offseason depending on how he recovers from the operation, but at this point, Posey intends to fill the same role next season.
Posey (hip) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Wednesday. Posey has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing hip surgery Monday. This move simply frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for Gregor Blanco, whose contract was purchased from the minors Wednesday. At this point, it's unclear if Posey will be ready to go for the start of the 2019 season.
Posey (hip) was officially placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports. This is largely a procedural move, as the All-Star backstop is already slated to miss the remainder of the season due to hip surgery coming up Monday. This move will allow the Giants to call up Aramis Garcia to provide catching depth in his stead. Posey will now look ahead to recovering for the 2019 season, though his 6-to-8 month recovery timetable puts his availability for next season's Opening Day in doubt.
Posey (hip) is out of the lineup against Texas on Saturday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey is set to undergo season-ending surgery on his right hip Monday, though he's yet to be placed on the disabled list or taken off the active roster at this point. Per Robert Murray of The Athletic, catching prospect Aramis Garcia will be called up by the Giants, which indicates that Posey's time in 2018 is all but over. That said, unless the Giants make the roster move prior to Saturday's game, there's a chance Posey will be available as a bat off the bench. Nick Hundley will handle the catching duties and hit cleanup.
Posey is not in the lineup versus the Mets on Thursday, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey will retreat to the bench after going 0-for-4 during Wednesday's contest. With season-ending hip surgery seemingly looming over his head, it remains to be seen how much longer Posey will remain on the active roster. In his place, Nick Hundley will catch Madison Bumgarner and bat seventh during the series finale. Per Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group, Posey is expected to rejoin the starting lineup Friday.
